30 States Pick Up Reigns on GMO Labeling Initiative After Prop 37 Defeat

With the defeat of California Prop 37, the fight to require labeling of genetically modified foods has passed on to other states, such as Washington and Vermont. Although California’s initiative failed on election day, the campaign brought national attention to the issue of labeling GM foods, with 30 other states now working to require GMO labels.

Breaking the Set: Prop 37 Fraud, Honor Vets: End War, OWS Absolves Debt


On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to Jon Rappoport from No More Fake News about Prop 37 voter fraud and how three million votes remain uncounted in California. She then calls out trolls for the first time from Breaking the Set social networks. BTS is then joined by RT correspondent Anastasia Churkina and BTS producer Manny Rapalo about the Occupy Wall Street's new project to absolve debt called Rolling Jubilee. She then commemorates Veteran's Day by calling out the dire state of Veteran's in the US.

Petition to sign to Count Every Vote for Prop 37

Dear California MoveOn member,

According to investigative journalist Jon Rappoport, more than one million votes on Prop 37 (the GMO labeling initiative) in California have gone uncounted to date. Since the margin of "victory" is about 600,000 votes, this means Prop 37 may conceivably have passed.

Rappoport called the voter registrar offices in the largest California counties and nearly 1.7 million votes remain uncounted in Santa Clara, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange Counties alone. It is still unknown how many votes are uncounted in other California counties.

Click below link to sign the petition: Count every vote on Prop 37.
SignOn.org - PROP 37: Count ALL the Votes!

I created a petition on SignOn.org to California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, which says:

We petition Debra Bowen, secretary of state of California, to require that ALL votes cast in the November 6 election be counted immediately. We specifically demand that ALL ballots in the following counties be counted and recorded: Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, and Santa Clara. We demand that the results of this complete ballot counting be made public immediately.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

–Linda Masterson

This petition was created on SignOn.org, the progressive, nonprofit petition site. SignOn.org is sponsored by MoveOn Civic Action, which is not responsible for the contents of this or other petitions posted on the site. Linda Masterson didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.

THE FAT LADY HASN’T SUNG YET ON PROP 37

By Cheri Tips, Executive Director

November 14, 2012


When I read the news that Prop 37 had been defeated, I was shocked and saddened as I knew a great campaign had been run to defeat Monsanto and its flock of agri-business friends and their infinitely deep pockets that had funded the “No Campaign.” I knew that the “No Campaign” had been unscrupulous and had resorted to fraudulent tactics and misleading advertising just so Californians would not be able to have label transparency so that they would know what they were consuming. With the many grassroots organizations (including the National Health Federation) and many thousands of consumers fighting a clean, strong battle, we couldn’t match the funds but the vote call of defeat was so close.

Don’t hang up your hats quite yet, read further, this battle isn’t over!

Jon Rappoport, of No More Fake News Jon Rappoport Investigative Reporter had alerted readers to the fact the “No Campaign” had feloniously used the official FDA seal and statements during their campaign attributing the statements to the FDA, WHO, and other organizations to convince Californians to vote against Prop 37. Rappoport stated, “The NO ON 37 forces have been caught in a deception. They used the official seal of the FDA in a mailer, and above that seal they attributed a quote to the FDA which was never made by that agency. The quote was: "The US Food and Drug Administration says a labeling policy like Prop 37 would be 'inherently misleading.'"

On November 8th, I read Jon’s next article concerning Prop 37, fraud, and the final vote counting issue. I immediately contacted Jon and Barbara Peterson of Farm Wars (Farm Wars), both strong health-freedom fighters, and they and NHF decided to fight back. Was Proposition 37 really lost? Why was the “Yes Campaign” stating defeat we wondered. The final vote count wasn’t until December 14th, there had been obvious fraud by the opposing campaign, and our collective nature is to fight until the end. NHF contacted some of the main “Vote Yes” groups questioning their calling defeat, Jon continued investigating those who actually had called the vote and other issues while Barbara sent word out to her lists and decided to get our questioning message out on an upcoming George Noory radio show. The ball was rolling and is still rolling. People and organizations are getting back up to continue the fight for Prop 37 now and the NHF asks that all readers join us by informing others.

The issues at hand now are below and this is information to get out to people that this issue isn't over until all votes are counted and the fraud issue pursued.

Over 3 Million Votes Remain Uncounted Election Results:


These results are from the California Secretary of State as of
November 8, 2012 at 4:30 a.m. PST with 100% of the state's
24,491 precincts partially reporting. The vote total will grow
substantially as each precinct counts its absentee, mail-in and
provisional ballots. This results section will be updated daily
until the final results have been certified in about three weeks.

Organic Consumers is now watching the vote, which should not all be counted until
December 14th- Organic Consumers Association Statement on California Prop 37 Uncounted Votes | Common Dreams


There is also a petition to prosecute the No Campaign-https://www.change.org/petitions/prosecute-the-no-on-37-committee-for-violation-of-federal-law



Jon Rappoport articles for background information-

YES ON 37 SAYS: RAPPOPORT "DISRUPTING TO THE HEALING THAT HAS TO TAKE PLACE" - National Health Federation - Your voice for health freedom

YES ON 37 CAMPAIGN REFUSES TO CHALLENGE VOTE FRAUD! - National Health Federation - Your voice for health freedom

DID PROP 37 REALLY LOSE OR WAS IT VOTE FRAUD? - National Health Federation - Your voice for health freedom


It is time to counterattack Monsanto and its allies, expose them for fraud, and contest the vote count when all figures are in for the sake of health freedom. Let’s all move together in the next several weeks. Send this to your e-lists, don’t give up now, and stay posted to this issue. There is very little time left! Do not let unscrupulous corporate entities take away our rights to GMO labeling. Please join the Federation to make this happen.

Update

Thank you so much for signing this petition.

I have to admit I have learned a great deal since starting it.

ALL VOTES ON PROP 37 WILL BE COUNTED, not because of our petition, but because it is required by law that all votes be counted. The counties have until December 7 to report the vote and Debra Bowen, Secretary of State, has until December 14 to certify the vote.

The final results WILL BE PUBLISHED, so every vote cast on Prop 37 will be honored.

Because of the importance of this issue nationally, I am researching how to have an effective petition at a national level.

Thank you, once again, for taking a stand on this important issue.


Warmly,

Linda

New Video: Just Label it with new celebrities taking on the cause

Just Label It - YouTube

Petition: Take Action |

Dear Citizen for Health,

Do you know how the food you eat is produced?


As you know, the fight to pass Prop 37 in California was unsuccessful - due to the millions spent by the No on 37 campaign to spread lies and obfuscate a very simple issue: We have a Right To Know what's in what we eat and drink, and feed to our families. However, while the proposition failed to pass, the campaign was successful in other ways. Most important: it galvanized the support for labeling GMOs nationwide and set the stage to bring the fight to Washington, D.C. while efforts to secure your Right To Know state-by-state move forward. We will continue to advocate for Right To Know policy and bring you important information to share as well as opportunities for action.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may soon approve genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. And the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is considering a new type of herbicide-resistant corn that will encourage the use of more chemicals in our food supply.


Bottom line? Our leaders won't let you make informed consumer choices at the grocery store because current policy doesn't require that genetically engineered foods be labeled.


That's why a slew of celebrities have joined millions of Americans to speak out in favor of labeling genetically engineered foods. Folks like Michael J. Fox from Spin City and Family Ties, Julie Bowen from Modern Family, Tom Colicchio from Top Chef, Emily VanCamp from Revenge, and many more. That's right – some pretty famous folks are fighting for your Right To Know and are raising awareness about labeling. See what they had to say in this fun video featuring new music from Ziggy Marley.


Please take a minute to watch this new video and share it with family and friends!


Can you guess what Chevy Chase said about GMOs?


Or which high-profile moms joined the video?


You'll find out who said what by taking a moment to watch the brand new video from the Just Label It campaign. And then be sure to contact the FDA and Congress in favor of labeling genetically engineered foods.


Together, we'll help make this country a place where every family and every child knows what they're eating.


Sincerely,


The Citizens for Health Team

Help

Help us find 5,000 new people to contact the FDA in the next 5 days!

We have a right to know how the food we buy is produced. Yet the FDA's current policy does not provide us with the ability to make informed choices about genetically engineered foods because they are not labeled.

Over forty countries – including Russia and China – require the labeling of genetically engineered foods. We have the power to fix this here in the United States, and there's never been a more pressing time.

The FDA is on the brink of approving genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. The salmon is engineered to produce growth hormones year-round that cause the fish to grow at twice the normal rate. The government already requires labels to tell us if fish is wild-caught or farm-raised – don't we also have a right to know if our salmon is genetically engineered? But without labels, we'll never know.

You stood with more than one million Americans for our right to know by contacting the FDA demanding that genetically engineered foods be labeled. But there are so many others who haven't heard anything about the reasons to label genetically engineered foods.

Will you tell your friends, family, and colleagues why genetically engineered foods should be labeled and ask them to join you in contacting the FDA?
Just Label It

You're not alone in your support of this issue. Not only have more than a million people already contacted the FDA, but studies show that 91% of Americans support mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.

We need to let the FDA know how much public support there is for this issue. It's our job to show them how many of us care about labeling genetically engineered foods. That's why it's so important to tell friends and family about this issue and the need for labeling. Can we count on you to spread the word?

Please, send a message to your family and friends with just a few clicks and help us meet our goal of 5,000 new people in the next 5 days.

Thank you for spreading the word today.

We're building a movement of concerned citizens – parents, health care workers, small business owners, farmers, and more – who care about our right to know about the food we eat.

In October 2011, the Just Label It campaign was formed when the Center for Food Safety filed a petition with the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to require the labeling of all foods produced using genetic engineering. Days later, we asked citizens from around the country to join us and tell the FDA to "Just Label It." By our latest count, more than a million Americans have contacted the FDA urging them to label genetically engineered foods. Ask others to sign on today at www.JustLabelIt.org/takeaction.

GMO labeling in America: Where we won -


Last week more than 5 million California voters stood up for transparency and labels on genetically engineered foods by voting Yes on Prop 37. We came up short on election night, but have built a powerful movement that has changed the conversation on GMO labeling in the U.S. forever.

At Food Democracy Now! we want to express our gratitude for you and all of our members who helped place Prop 37 and labeling of genetically engineered foods as a central part of the national debate during this year’s election.

It was a hard fought race and we’ve been amazed and inspired by the grassroots support in California and across the country. Despite being outspent nearly 6 to 1, the Yes on 37 campaign fought Monsanto and DuPont to a standstill with 47.6% to 52.4% at the polls.

We may not have won on election night, but what we did gain is unprecedented and can never be taken from us: the fact that millions of people have stood up for democracy and labeling of genetically engineered foods, and we have fundamentally changed the conversation in the U.S. forever.

What's next?

Along with our allies, we've been encouraged to hear this question ring throughout California among those who gave their heart and soul to this fight and within the growing national food movement: "What's next?"

Food Democracy Now! has been a part of this fight from the beginning and along with our close allies who fought with us every step of the way, we can tell you that this fight is not over and we will not stop until we achieve transparency and the basic Right to Know what's in our food.

Why do 61 other countries enjoy this right while Americans do not?

It's time that we make sure these questions are heard at the highest levels here in the U.S., from the White House to Congress to state capitals across the country.

Right now efforts are unfolding in Washington state where volunteers are gathering signatures to place an initiative similar to Prop 37 on the ballot in 2013 and there are attempts to get President Obama to enact his 2007 campaign promise to label GMOs in Washington DC. No matter what, GMO labeling in the U.S. is going to become a reality.

Give Thanks and Reward Our Heroes

Today there are there are 2 things that you can do to move this conversation forward and help thank those who stood with us during the historic battle on Prop 37.

1. Please join us in thanking those Organic Heroes who stood with us in the fight on Prop 37, from the moms, grandmothers and grassroots activists to the California farmers and organic and natural companies that helped make the fight possible. Without their help, it wouldn't have been possible!

2. Please join Food Democracy Now! in committing to doubling down in the marketplace by supporting those companies that supported your Right to Know at the grocery store.

A lot of these companies are small in size, but their leaders gave a generous amount to help us in the fight to Label GMOs in California. Please reward them with your undying brand loyalty at your local coop or grocery store because when the next fight comes, we know they'll be there for us!

Thank the Heroes of Prop 37

Thank Dr. Mercola, Dr. Bronner's, Lundberg Family Farms, Nutiva, Amy's Kitchen, Organic Valley, Clif Bar, Udi's, Earth Balance, Annie's Homegrown, Applegate, Eden Foods and Good Earth Natural Foods. They have stepped up to the plate and stood beside their customers and this grassroots movement to Label GMOs.
The people who run these companies care a great deal about doing the right thing and Food Democracy Now! is proud to stand with them in the fight to label GMOs!

Click here to sign a thank you letter to be sent to our Organic Heroes who support Yes on 37 to label genetically engineered foods!

Election Results and False Reports of Voter Fraud

Despite numerous reports of voter fraud in the election on Yes on 37, there have been no proof of fraud or vote tampering in California. As with every election, not every ballot is counted on election night and currently Food Democracy Now! is working with the California Right to Know campaign to monitor the final vote tally from the state.

As of November 16, 2012, the vote totals are 5,869,382 NO to 5,329,994 YES, with the NO side ahead 52.4% to 47.6%.

California state law requires county elections officials to report their final results to the Secretary of State by December 7. The Secretary of State has until December 14 to certify the results of the election.

Food Democracy Now! will continue to monitor these election results with our allies and report the latest results.

Thanks again for participating in food democracy. Your involvement has help build a stronger movement and brought us one step close to GMO labeling!
Thank you for contributing what you can today - Together we can win!

Thanks for participating in food democracy,

Dave, Lisa and the Food Democracy Now! Team

P.S. As we move forward in our efforts, we need your help! Please chip in today to help defeat Monsanto’s bid to silence GMO labeling in the U.S. - It's time to fight back to make GMO labeling a reality!
